Velocity Diet Day 1 and Away We Go!


#1

I actually tried to start this diet last March. I was one week in and I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Diffused Large B Cell Lymphoma and I had to quit :O(
I spent 6 months battling and kicking the shit out of cancer. I was declared cancer free in August.

Unfortunately the chemo drugs and the steroids they gave me caused me to gain 30 lbs. (I am 6’2" and very large boned, so I can carry weight more than a shorter woman) I am ready to start this again and lose the weight I gained. I have a wedding dress to fit into! Wish me luck!

You already beat a cancer so this should be walk in a park for you.

Good luck and keep us posted!

Its sooooooo hard. It takes so much self control, but Im doing it. I look better and I feel better. Only 6 more days to go. I’ll be done on the 30th. There is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Wow, this thread is SO inspirational. Dawndeegirl, I so agree with you about how hard this diet is. This is my 4th day and yesterday was so bad. What has began to motivate me though when I feel like giving in is Chris’ words, yes, you might feel hungry but…, SUCK IT IT!! I am beginning to get a little bit of backbone. I am the one doing the cooking which makes it even harder. The next 24 days seems like forever so I am really proud of all those who are near the finishing line.


#19

Wow. I can’t believe I only have 5 more days to go! I feel like the little train that could…chugging up the hill. The first couple of weeks you think…“I think I can, I think I can”…now as Im closing out my last week, I can proudly say, “I know I can, I know I can!” I have learned an incredible amount of self discipline. Im so close to my goal of losing 30 lbs. My chemo weight gain is almost but a mere memory (painful memory)

On another note…why oh why is it that when you’re on a freakin diet that EVERY single damn commercial is about food??? I mean come on already!! LOL

I so agree with you. What sucks even worse is when you really cook something awesome and you can’t even eat it!!!
